Healthy Ageing: From Molecules to Organisms

Location

Kendrew Lecture Theatre | Wellcome Trust Genome Campus (link Map)
Hinxton | Saffron Walden | Cambridgeshire | CB10 1SD | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Student

Ageing can lead to declining health and function, and it is the major risk factor for cancer, neurodegenerative and cardiovascular disease. This new Wellcome Trust conference will focus on recent discoveries and current challenges in ageing research, with a focus on translating basic research insights into health improvement for older people. We aim to explore the mechanisms of ageing in cells, tissues and organisms in order to identify interventions that can ameliorate its negative effects. The meeting will also emphasise the connection between discoveries made in model organisms and mechanisms leading to healthy ageing in humans.

The meeting is aimed at scientists, clinicians and drug developers involved in research into ageing and other relevant fields. We welcome the submission of abstracts from all areas relevant to the main themes of the meeting. Several oral presentations will be chosen from the abstracts submitted.
